I'm sure the Passat will improve from that. Most people are getting mid 40s with no issues.

Remember about biodiesel: the Passat and Beetle can't use more than 5% (B5) per VW. However, a number of people have used B20 by watching their oil level and condition carefully. Don't even think about using higher than B20. The common-rail TDIs will have all kinds of issues, and VW will not cover any engine issues if you do.
